Composing signature with linear gradient brush background

GroupDocs.Signature provides LinearGradientBrush class to specify filling signature background with linear gradients

 Here are the steps to use Linear gradient brush with GroupDocs.Signature:

This example shows how to use Texture brush for signature background. See SignResult 

Signature signature = new Signature("sample.docx");
TextSignOptions options = new TextSignOptions("John Smith");
 
// adjust signature appearance brush
 
// setup background
Background background = new Background();
background.setColor(Color.GREEN);
background.setTransparency(0.5);
background.setBrush(new LinearGradientBrush(Color.GREEN, Color.WHITE, 45));
options.setBackground(background);
 
// locate signature
options.setWidth(100);
options.setHeight(80);
options.setVerticalAlignment(VerticalAlignment.Center);
options.setHorizontalAlignment(HorizontalAlignment.Center);
Padding padding = new Padding();
padding.setTop(20);
padding.setRight(20);
options.setMargin(padding);
 
// set alternative signature implementation on document page
options.setSignatureImplementation(TextSignatureImplementation.Image);
 
// sign document to file
SignResult signResult = signature.sign("signed.docx", options);
// analyzing result
System.out.print("List of newly created signatures:");
int number = 1;
for(BaseSignature temp : signResult.getSucceeded())
{
    System.out.print("Signature #"+ number++ +": Type: "+temp.getSignatureType()+" Id:"+temp.getSignatureId()+
            ",Location: "+temp.getLeft()+"x"+temp.getTop()+". Size: "+temp.getWidth()+"x"+temp.getHeight());
}
